I have been working at Project H.O.M.E. full-time (More than a year)
Valuable mission and work, dedicated staff and supportive management, great reputation throughout Philadelphia.
Organization is growing at a rapid rate; while this is a good thing, the organization is experiencing growing pains. Policies and procedures change extremely frequently, you're never really sure who to contact when you need something done (because of all of the changes).
Advice to Management
Project HOME is too big to be run like a small organization. Policies and procedures need to reflect what Project HOME has become.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Project H.O.M.E. (Philadelphia, PA) in March 2009.
The interview process was great. Met with a good splice of the organization to get a good idea of the work going to be involved, and the work that the organization did. Had 3 interviews and each one was with someone higher in the organization. Everyone was very nice and not intimidating at all. The questions asked were quite standard as they used interview guides given to them by HR. A few questions were a bit personal and may not have been legal, but in this setting it was ok. Be prepared to be interviewing in a non-conventional meeting space in a residential facility with the clients around.
